Baseball contributions to wai unds total $2,128,698, he declared and admission taxes paid th government through the Nationc tnd American Leagues for the 194 and 1943 seasons amounted to $2 289,702.

Up to last week there hadn't been as many oddities on the field as you might expect in a season when colleges officially dropped football, then came back with "informal" teams, when some players turned up on two or three different teams through navy transfers, when student managers were pressed into service, when colleges like Columbia had stars of All-America caliber right hand.y but ineligible.

A special committee of the coast conference yesterday picked Wash ington's virtually untried but apparently powerful Huskies to oppose the fa'st-fading Trojans, winners of the ' southern half of the war-split conference title, in Pasadena New Year's Day. The committee said it had "explored in full the possibility of playing a game of traditional East- West character but from all points of view, including the military, the Washington- Southern California contest was the most desirable and practicable under present war conditions." tained from President Ford Frick of the National League, Lucas gave this breakdown of the manpower | setup in the senior circuit: Players in the services, 151 (as of Oct. 15, 1943) players on the 1944 reserve list, 263. Of the latter group, he said, 85 are prc-Pearl Harbor fathers, 37 are classified 4-F in the draft, 20 are over 35 years old, 31 over 30, 31 are post-Pearl Harbor fathers, ;hree are aliens and two are under military age. Eleven are married men with children. Twenty-one have been reclassified in 1-A and 10 already have been order4d to report for induction examinations.

The Fuehrer can't replace his losses on the eastern front, and consequen ly is growing weaker each day as he pulls his line back and leaves more supplies behind. The harsh cprollary to this is that even if the Nazi chief could replace his losses in manpower which he cannot do — he would be unable to give them the equipment necessary to withstand the Russian onslaught. The German army still possesses great defensive power, as we likely shall have demonstrated when we undertake the great invasions of France, but it has shot its bolts as an offensive machine. As things stand, the fate of the retreating German forces is bouncing about like the ball in a roulette wheel, and nobody can say where the ball will drop. While there are bound to be local Nazi disasters, one would expect them to keep retiring in hooe of being able to make a stand.

Fractional gains were scored by oats and barley. Traders said the strength in rye was based on a belief that, if ceilings should be set on oats and barley, marketings of these grains may dry up and thereby expand the demand for rye as a substitute. Large premiums were paid for choice offerings of oats in the cash market, supporting futures.

The St. Francis river valley, with the richest land in the world, had drouth damage on the 1943 crop. Collon production was 65 lo 70 per cenl of normal. Corn was a lolal loss. On one plantation whose average cotton yield is a bale-and- a-quartcr per acre, the operator planted 350 acres lo corn—and got Iwo wagonloads. 2. Farm labor is fleeing Ihc cotton country for Chicago war- plants. Agriculture, pinned down cither by government rule or economic circumstance, is unable lo mcel Ihc competition of war-swollen indu>tn : tl wages. Added to the competition of wages is the competition of the armed forces, for Selective Service has just recently stiffened the requirements for a farmer seeking deferment. Now he must show 1,200 poin'.; As an average bale of coUon counts for 80 points, this means a cotlon farmer musl show 15 bales production to qualify for deferment. If this is worrying farmers in betlcr-than-balc-to- Ihe-acre territory you can imagine what the prospect is for holding help on the farm in areas where production averages a third or a bale or less. 3, The government has abandoned cotton quotas for the coming year. This means there will be no conservation payment; (commonly known as ;A'parUy'Sfe£nfci3' government estimates, ruthlessly correct, that farmers can't get enough labor for 1944 to overproduce cotlon. But with the uncertain market outlook the average farmer reels he has lo produce more cotton lo > be sure ot a normal return—otherwise it will be wholesale liquidalion of farming as an unprofitable enterprise. o'clock at night.

To date, beginning with that raid, Allied fliers in their favorite hunting ground for enemy warships — Rabaul and Kavieng, New Ireland — have sunk or damaged more than 40. Three cruisers, at least 10 destroyers and a gunboat have been sunk. At least ,11 cruisers, 15 destroyers, a destroyer 'tender, a submarine, a submarine tender and a corvette have been damaged. Two additional cruisers were listed as probably hit at Rabaul.

Adding to Japan's cruiser losses during lhe period were one sunk and two damaged in a naval battle off Bougainville.
